Lobbying & Advocacy Guide

As a private U.S. foundation, our foundation is prohibited from funding attempts to “influence legislation” (often referred to as the lobbying prohibition). A violation could result in penalty taxes for the foundation or even the loss of its tax-exempt status. As a result, grantees of the foundation may not use grant funds for lobbying but may conduct advocacy that does not constitute lobbying under U.S. tax law.1 We hope this guide will help clarify the difference.
